“It’s great!” Harry, USA, 27/01/2014

“I love everything about it! The looks the sound, the playabilitity, everything” Anthony Clark (has a 58PF Custom) 8/01/2013.

“What a voice she has! Too busy playing it at the mo’ to expand further” LC 07/09/2012

“Over the moon … amazing … lost for words” , Des Hickey, 11/03/2011 (and then on 26/04/2011) “The transition from metal to nylon strings was never going to be easy but … i’m finally back on track. My Hanika 58 PF produces a clarity of tone that is surprisingly moving, accompanied by a firm action, allowing for crystal-clear, delicate plucking as well as strong strumming. What a god send. The quality of workmanship is simply stunning, which added to the unique quality of tone makes this guitar a joy to play. Solid yet subtle, my custom-made Hanika is a real work of art.”

Stanley Gander phoned the day he took delivery of his Hanika 58PF: “wonderful … exceeds my expectations … incredible … no words to describe the tone … converted me instantly” (58PF with 54mm nut width and curved fingerboard options) February 2009.

When Richard Foster received his specially built 58PC he phoned and said “absolutely immaculate … exceeds even my highest expectations … beautifully made … tight grained soundboard … superb finish … intonation spot on … very comfortable in the hands … a very satisfied customer” 2/12/2008

A few months earlier this is what Geoff Johnson said “I have to tell you how thrilled I am with the lovely guitar (58PC Natural Finish) that Hanika made for me. It’s all I could have wished for with the radiused and narrower/shorter than standard, fingerboard that I requested. The quality of the workmanship is superb and the tone is absolutely wonderful. Thank you very much and Best wishes” Geoff Johnson. 23/5/2008

And 10 days later we heard from Geoff again: “absolutely brilliant, superb instrument” Geoff Johnson. 4/6/2008

The next customer to buy a Hanika 58P – this time one with a spruce soundboard and natural finish – was equally enthusiastic –

“It’s fantastic, better than I imagined it would be. The tone is wonderful and the playing action so easy; as for the volume wow!” Sean Stone 7th July 2008.
